List of schools with traffic violations needed for app?

Postby bigkahuna2020 » Fri Nov 12, 2010 3:11 pm

So I see Vandy, NYU, UPenn and WUSTL so long. I have an illegal turn, rolling through a stop sign (all within a few months of getting my permit) and then 4 years later, one speeding ticket

Should I include the two (unpaid) parking tickets I got in Canada?

Also, what about a citation for underage drinking that was dismissed without a court appearance, just a letter?

On a related note, I have an minor in possession of alcohol from high school and I'm in the process of getting it expunged (so I don't have to reveal it on the apps). Can't decide whether to apply for ED by the 15th or just wait for it to get done in a month or so. Any advice much appreciated

Oh, I also WAS NOT ARRESTED, but it was an MIP

You think UPenn's question really includes traffic violations?

if you are unsure, call the school directly. They will tell you if you need to include it or not.

Just being safe, I guess. Writing one for the MIP anyway (in which I will have to hold back my rant about the 18 yr old drinking age and the unconstitutionality (my opinion I know) of holding highway dollar hostage for a relatively unrelated public health law change)

for some apps, u still have to disclose even if it's expunged.

also, you can have an "arrest" for an mip. arrest doesn't necessarily mean put in handcuffs.
